By selecting a degree programme you are able to see the general content as well as the possible degree programme-specific content. You do not have to select a degree programme to see the Open University's instructions.

Pay no attention to the degree programme selection above, it only concerns students in the new degree programmes.

Here you will find instructions for students of the Faculty of Science who began their studies prior to autumn 2017.

You can complete your degree according to the old requirements by 18 December 2020 or transfer to a new degree programme.

Please pay particular attention to the provisions for the expiry of studies in the new degree structure. In the new degree programmes, degrees cannot include studies completed more than 10 years earlier. Expired studies must be completed again.

If you received a letter in June 2018 concerning the continuation of your studies, read the instructions entitled Completing your degree by 18 December 2020.

Bachelor's thesis has to be submitted to the thesis supervisor for examination by November 13, 2020 unless otherwise agreed with the supervisor.
